Undergraduate Advising & Registration


Advance registration for upcoming semesters occurs in November for the spring semester, and in April for the Fall semester, Summer I, and Summer II. All chemical engineering students will need to be advised by Kristina Thompson, our undergraduate staff advisor, before they will be allowed to register. The advisor office is in Chemical Engineering Building Room 209, and advising hours are 9:00 a.m. − 12:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. − 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Career Counseling

Career counseling is mandatory for juniors in the fall semester prior to registering for their spring classes. Prior to meeting with their academic advisor, every junior−level student must fill out the Chemical Engineering Career Counseling Sheet.

Juniors must select a member of the faculty to be their career counselor. The selection process is accomplished by seeing Mary Beth Abernathy in the departmental office, CHE 204. Students should then email their career counselor for an appointment. Take your completed career counseling form and a copy of your Curriculum Vitae (CV) or Résumé to your appointment.
